There is no in-between. You are either a bystander or a difference maker in the face of changing trauma.
Bury your past.
Let flowers grow
where they lay.
Always expecting this and expecting that. May I recommend serenity to you? A life that is burdened with expectations is a heavy life. Its fruit is sorrow and disappointment. Learn to be one with the joy of the moment.

Strive to be authentic, not perfect.
Please note, it is healthy to need attention from the ones we care about. Learn to seek it in healthy ways, ask straightforwardly, or use creative signals with your family or partner to let them know you need them. Avoid manipulation and negative attention seeking, that only gets the wrong kind of attention and you are left unfulfilled.

You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.
